First double-decker train with seats

Double-decker carriages with seats are a unique invention for Russia. Before, we have already highlighted the appearance of the double-decker trains on the routes Moscow - Adler, Kazan, and St. Petersburg. In previous cases they were composed of sleeping carriages, equipped with berths, but now they are presented in a version suitable for the short day trips, where berths are substituted with seats.

The first 'firmenny' (branded) double-decker train with seats will appear on the route Moscow - Voronezh. The train #45/46 will be launched on 31st of July 2015. This train will be the fastest on the route. The ride from Moscow to Voronezh will take just 6 hours 35 min. Along the way train will make several stops in Ryazan, Michurinsk and Gryazi Voronezhskaya.
